(NZQA Units: 6400 and 6401, 6402)

Comprehensive First Aid is recommended for all workplaces, higher-risk job sites, working outside or in cool stores, working at heights, with electricity or chemicals, away from the urban environment where it might take a bit longer for emergency services to arrive. Being able to respond first, while waiting for medical professionals to arrive, is essential to help others and save lives.
